DISCOVER the emerging talent soon to be unleashed across the Creative Arts industries in an end of year exhibition at Havering College.
Students from across the range of Creative Arts courses including Art & Design, Fashion, Fine Art, Graphic Design, Media, Music, Performing Arts, Photography and 3 D Design Craft are preparing to showcase their work at the Ardleigh Green Campus in Hornchurch, Greater London.
The arts show taking place in the college's £6million Centre of Creative Arts launches with a 'private view' on Tuesday, June 17th from 4.30pm-8pm with the displays continuing every day until Friday, June 20th. All are welcome to attend.
The launch coincides with a college Open Event at the Ardleigh Green Campus on Tuesday, June 17th when teaching teams and advisors will be on hand from 4.30pm to 8pm to give information and advice on all college courses.
Havering College offers courses in a wide range of subjects including Accountancy, Engineering, Electrical Installation, Hair & Beauty and IT. Courses range from pre-entry level, through to degree level and post graduate qualifications. Potential students will be able to apply on the night. Expert advice will also be available on apprenticeships and how they work.
Among the students preparing for the End of Year Creative Arts Festival are Foundation Diploma Art & Design students Amara Clapperton, Ramz Jamal, Karen Phillips and Ryan Gleed.
Amara's installation titled Mythical Assemblage features handcrafted models of weird and wonderful imaginary creatures, inspired by an 18th century explorer.
The 18-year-old student can trace her family's lineage back to Hugh Clapperton (1788-1827) who was a Scottish naval officer and explorer of West and Central Africa.
Harold Hill resident Amara said: "I have envisaged an island, just off the coast of Africa, on which he gets trapped and the environment and creatures he encounters. I am making a journal for the exhibition and will be including some information on Hugh Clapperton in the introduction."
Amara will be progressing on to the BA (Honours) 3D Design Craft course at Havering College in September.
Classmate Ramz Jamal, 19, from Barking, is passionate about comic book art which he uses to great effect in his piece exploring stress. Ramz has gained a place at Middlesex University to study Illustration.
Another Havering College student heading to university this year is Karen Phillips, 19, from Hornchurch, who will be showcasing her talents as a screen printer in her project How We Think in which jigsaw pieces representing ideas are slotted together.
Fellow student Ryan Gleed. 18, from Harold Hill, has produced a series of posters on Sci-fi and the future. He now has a place at Middlesex University to study for a degree in Web Design.
Havering College BA Fine Art course leader Chris Stevens said: "Every year it is always amazing to see the quality of the students' work from the full gamut of arts disciplines taught at Havering College. The arts are very popular in this area and the exhibition is a chance for everyone to come and see our emerging talent. It promises to be another great event."
